Trigger Inc. (株式会社トリガー?, Kabushiki kaisha Torigā), stylized as TRIGGER, also known as Studio Trigger, is a Japanese animation studio founded by former Gainax employees Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Ohtsuka in August 2011.

Business[edit]

Trigger was established on August 22, 2011 by Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Ohtsuka shortly after leaving Gainax.[2] The studio name and official website was revealed in October 2011.[3] Along with assisting production on various series, Trigger has released a short film, Little Witch Academia,[4] and has developed its first original anime television series, Kill la Kill, which aired from October 2013 to March 2014.[5][6] On July 8, 2013 Trigger launched a Kickstarter project in order to fund a second episode of Little Witch Academia. The project was well received and achieved its goal of $150,000 in under five hours, and went on to raise a total of $625,518.[7] On March 11, 2014 it was announced that they would be producing an adaptation of Inō-Battle wa Nichijō-kei no Naka de.
